How should we design? Design for How People Learn (Dirksen). Ideally, with your sample population. Of course, it may be that in the process of just designing both that you have some insight. The post Designing with science appeared first on Learnlets.

Designing Microlearning

Clark Quinn

Earlier, I wrote about designing microlearning, but what I was really talking about was the design of spaced learning. So how should you design the type of microlearning I really feel is valuable? The design process, then, would be to identify the model guiding the performance (e.g. The post Designing Microlearning appeared first on Learnlets. design mobileYesterday, I clarified what I meant about microlearning.

Is Wikipedia getting too hard? A random sampling

David Weinberger

Please note that this is an entirely unscientific, non-significant sampling. It is designed primarily to enable the separation of document content (written in HTML or a similar markup language) from document presentation (written in CSS). In baseball, the designated hitter rule is the common name for Major League Baseball Rule 6.10[1], A couple of weeks ago, I happened to come across a few Wikipedia articles that struck me as too hard.

Learning Experience Design Strategy

Clark Quinn

On our weekly twitter learning fest, #lrnchat , I regularly identify myself as a learning experience design strategist. When you think about creating learning experiences, you are talking about design. You need a design process, tools, and good concepts around learning and engagement. Really, both my book on designing engaging learning experiences, and my forthcoming one on mobile learning, are at core about design. Tags: design strategy

Update: Designing mLearning

Clark Quinn

Well, it’s been a bit of a saga, but there are some new developments about my forthcoming: Designing mLearning: Tapping Into the Mobile Revolution for Organizational Performance. The good news is I’ve finally got a downloadable PDF sample of the book, including what I think is a clever cover design (caveat, my idea :), the ‘about the book’ section, Ellen Wagner ‘s gracious foreword, and the short section introduction and first chapter.

[liveblog] Judith Donath on designing for sociality (“Social Machines”)

David Weinberger

I read it this weekend and it is a rich work that explores the ways in which good design can improve our online sociality. Judith begins by saying that the theme of the book is the importance of online social interaction and designing for it. She uses a Mark Twain story [" Was the World Made for Man? "] about an oyster’s point of view to remind us that online design isn’t really all that evolved. She came back from Japan trying to design a more useful display.

Pick my brain?

Clark Quinn

One had heard me speak about learning design, and one had heard about a workshop I’d given, but both contacted me. It is clear they realized that there’s value to them for having a scrutable learning design. So for the first one, they wanted some feedback on their design, and we arranged that I’d investigate a representative sample and provide feedback. These are about learning design, but I have some examples in strategy that I intend to share soon.
